Whether or not you are in the temper for romance or simply need to take better care of your body, there`s a spa sitting right there in your house.
Problem: Dull, dry, lackluster hair
Use lemon juice as a rinse over freshly washed hair to encourage natural highlights, specially if you’re a blond. It’s instant sunshine for your hair, in a fruit.
Beer has long been used, even by professionals, as a setting lotion and conditioner. Pour directly from the can or bottle, comb through and rinse.
Mayonnaise, straight from the jar, will make your hair to be soft and shiny. The vinegar gives it body and bounce, while the egg nourishes brittle hair with protein.
Try this mixture to regain supple hair: Mix one teaspoon powdered brewers’ yeast with 4 ounces of apple cider vinegar to make an after wash rinse. Pour it over wet hair and let stand at least a minute before rinsing.
Problem: Oily hair and skin
Add one teaspoon baking soda to two ounces of your favorite shampoo. This works as an alkali to soak up excess oil.
Baking soda works the same way with skin, it will absorb oil and also neutralize excess acid in your skin. Make a paste with baking soda and water.
Try lemon juice as an astringent facial purifier.
Problem: Dry skin
For a selfmade scrub, blend ground oats and honey. Rub throughout your face —in particular your nose. The abrasive will take away dry skin at the same time as the honey seeps in as a moisturizer. Rinse completely off and pat dry, and your skin will be glowing child tender. Best use this remedy once a week.
Plain honey is an etop remedy for chapped lips. Leave on overnight—it makes for sweet dreams!
For superdry skin, use olive oil. Rub it in prior to a bath or bathe. You can substitute peanut, sunflower oil or sesame.
A quart of milk in a hot bath is a luxury as well as a skin toner. It’s a trick nearly as vintage as time.
Problem: Puffy, tired-looking eyes
Used teabags make excellent eye cosmetics. After dunked, drain it and place it over your closed eye (one for each) and hold it there for a couple of minutes. Redness, soreness, swelling and infection will disappear like magic.
